The benefits of a calm organised space for our wellbeing are huge. Better sleep, reduced stress and increased productivity to name just a few. But, life is busy. And often there’s no time, it feels too overwhelming, or it’s difficult to know where to start.
I can help you get on top of your home in days, not months. From decluttering and organising that room of doom to helping you through a house move. Creating a space that’s easy to maintain and quick to tidy, making your life easier and giving you time back to do the things you love.
I am a CPD accredited professional organiser with industry leader Dilly Carter, from BBC One's 'Sort Your Life Out'. Working on the show is definitely a career highlight!
A huge thank you Kate for all that you have done at our house, it’s made such a difference to our lives already. The whole house feels calmer and the children seem calmer within it. They have places to go now and everything is taking less time and is so much easier to keep on top of. This morning we left for school 10 minutes earlier than usual because everything is just so much more organised and I can get the jobs done so much quicker. I am thrilled with how it’s changed our lives already in just a few days.
Kate completely transformed my parents' kitchen so it is accessible for my dad and makes sense. Everything is within reaching distance, and they aren't walking around looking for things. The addition of clever tools recovered space in their cupboards that were home to long forgotten items. Mary Poppins would be impressed with the amount of space she recovered from their cupboards. Kate has this incredible ability to reorganise your space in a way that leaves you wondering how you lived any differently, and most importantly, not like someone has broken into your home and disrupted your life.
Our lounge lacked storage space and I was finding it difficult to visualise solutions that fitted the style and layout of the room. Kate provided a fresh pair of eyes and came up with some great ideas, the majority of which we have actioned or will do. She helped me think long-term, as well as in the here and now, for example, thinking about what comes after baby toys! All in all, a very worthwhile experience, thanks Kate!
Kate has just transformed our family dump room, aka office! It was the embarrassment of the house and one I had no idea how to tackle. Kate was made aware of my potential anxiety to go through the process of sorting, I hate throwing things out. When the time came for Kate to do her thing I was surprisingly calm, at times ruthless with my sorting whereas I had been emotional on previous attempts. (I had a lot of arts and crafts bits and bobs). I found the process calming and Kate was supportive in guiding me in the decision making. End result – I have a clear space for my full-time job, all associated work items flow across the existing units within the workspace environment. Our local charity shop has benefited from a good selection of donations. But the piece de-resistance – I have a well thought out creative space for ‘me time’ and my boys. I can see clearly what I have which not only will stop me from overbuying but it is inspiring me to be creative! Don’t underestimate how much this service can make a positive impact - it’s not just about the physical environment but it has helped me mentally too.
Kate came into our very cluttered home with no judgment and really good suggestions and thoughts for our kitchen and utility room. It's hard to describe the stress I was feeling by all the STUFF everywhere, as a parent who is working and studying. We had no time and were both feeling fairly desperate. Kate came in and worked so hard (the kitchen being the biggest task!). We were struck by how much we had accumulated and she was able to help us see what we did need and to think about whether the extra items were necessary. The kitchen and utility room feel so much bigger and less cluttered and we love it. We were particularly impressed by Kate's consideration of our children, factoring them into the organisation of the kitchen and actually making my life easier now they can access what they need. I also love my lazy susans for all my oils and sauces, as well as the organised and labelled spaces. Everything "makes sense" and has its place.
